Internships within the fields of engineering, banking, social work, programming and more will nurture our FLY (For the Livelihood of Youth) students’ soft skills, increasing their experience and developing their confidence to successfully and independently enter the job market.
The program was piloted this quarter and is currently at the halfway stage: 25 young men and women, all graduates of universities and vocational institutes, committed to and completed three months of intensive sessions in English for international use and soft skills workshops. They have all developed their resumes and practiced their newly acquired interview skills and are now in the process of applying for internships. These youth are proof to all of us that potential just needs an opportunity to blossom.
FLY is implemented in partnership with Taawon-Lebanon and Arab Fund for Economic and Social Development.
